It is something we weren't doing earlier in the year, or hell something we didn't do against the Flyers last week.

Maybe you are right we need another Atlantic game to get fired up.
Another thing that's been talked about by a lot of people, not just me. It should be no excuse, but we've also struggled mightily in games that start at weird times. 1:00 PM, 3:00 PM, the 12:00 PM, and this weird 5:00 PM start really sucked. The team needs to find a way to battle through it, but it has been a problem.

Even that Isles game a few weeks back on super bowl sunday. Moose was a beast that game. It wasn't our best game, but the defense was great, and we killed off like 8 penalties that game. If Moose don't stop that shorthanded breakaway from Grabner though, that could have very well ended up with Nabby getting the shutout.
